    Quick Router Bit Tray

    No biggie, just a quick easy little router bit holder I made.

    Made out of scrap pegboard and ply. Drilled some 1/2" holes for the larger shank bits.

    Got tired of having them running around in my router tool box (Actually an old fishing tackle box). Sure I could have the bits in seperate sections in the box, but this just makes it easier to see whats what.

    I like it! Is it going to set inside of a drawer or something? Or are you putting drawer glides on it?

    Just setting in a drawer in my router table. Unfortunately, the bit tall blue one is too tall for the drawer it's going into!

    But that's the longest bit I have so it's not a deal breaker. I might drill almost all the way through the plywood bottom for it to see if I can get it to fit.

    I'm finding that once I get all my drawers built, I'll be spending even more time making drawer organizers...

    It's a vicious cycle huh?

    Brent, hey, for Big Blue, why not drill one hole at a steep angle?

    Not a bad idea at all. Way to think outside the box!

    Well, you know, thinking about boxes, inside, outside, etc. is my SPECIALTY. A router bit box would be a fine idea for a box gift.....if anyone was giving anyone a box.... as long as some of the holes were drilled at an angle

    Why do you think I've been using my router table and needed to organize the bits!

    Because you're OCD and clearly organizing your shop is your religion.

    Well, yes to the OCD, and organizing the shop is my main hobby. If anything resembling wood working comes out of it, well, that's just a miracle!
